WhiteSmoke 2011

Throughout the world the need for communication between countries and international business is growing and as a result, so is the need for a common language: English.
WhiteSmoke 2011 involves Natural Language Processing (or NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) which allows the software to “learn” the way the human mind works in the process of writing, thus going beyond providing grammatical and typographical corrections, but also improving the style, tone and clarity of your writing.

Remove the included ToolBar, and make both the software and your web-site Malware Free.

Stop bothering users with toolbars they did not ask for, and change their search settings.

Get rid of the tool bar and home gage hijack - or at least uncheck it during the installation wizard.

Adding such things to your installation wizard makes me suspect the integrity of your company and wonder why such an expensive product needs to resort to such tactics.

The program attaches itself to my start up without asking permission

I'm beginning not to like this software even more with all the negative things it does

Adds itself to startup. No option to disable it.Had to do it manually. Translator & Dictionary needs net connection.So I am better off with Google Translator & WordWeb. Limited No. of Templates. Adds an icon on the desktop to buy the product.That is

This is way too much for the average user over $249 you must be joking. Reduce the price significantly.

If this software is a s good as you say in your blurb, then it'll sell really well, so there's no need to have such a high price.

I got a warning from my security software that the program tries to download data from the net invisibly - why does it have to be invisible, it should ask permission.

I considered buying this software a few years ago, but decided against it after being innundated with spam from them. Make sure you unchech the 'receive info' from them during the registration phase

Reconsider $250 as a serious price point.

When it costs more than buying a full license for Office 2010, your pricing becomes comical.

Update the GUI (user interface). For a $250 program it looks rubbish.

I know looks aren't everything, but they do go part way to making me think this is a well constructed software. Just becasue it's so expensive doesn't mean it's going to be good. I remember when Starburn was first offered here on the...

Include a proper help file. The link for the help and the User Guide just direct you to the develoipers site where you WONT find any proper help file just more prompts to purchase the software.

You say this works with 'all' text based applications but you don't list any on your site. Does this work with open office?

Use HTTPS and not HTTP for all user data traffic to your server and stop exposing customers private text to anyone that can put a packet sniffer on the connection

Currently because this application processes the user typed text in the "cloud" on the vendors server it needs to be sent using a secure HTTPS SSL connection and not a publicly readable plain text that can be read by anyone that can sniff packets...

Needs to use default browser instead of insisting on IE which is disabled (mostly) on my system. Can not install software since license key seems to want IE.

Add many more languages in the Translation/Dictionary sections. You choice is really basic for a 'language' software.
